    Medicare or Root Canal?


    Medicare does not provide for dental care.  No wonder so many of my low-income neighbors have false teeth.


    I had to drop Medicare, save up and pay CASH for a root canal.  It took almost 3 months to find a doctor who would let me split $1000 root canal into 4 payments.  Now, to get back on Medicare, they will charge a penalty fee and raise the monthly payments.


    I am diagnosed bipolar - Medicare does not pay for a psychiatrist to assess & prerscirbe my meds.  They pay for the meds but not the doctor.   I'm screwed.


    We have not had health care in this country since the 80's.  It is health BUSINESS, driven by greed.  The health care system needs to be gone over just like the budget, line by line, doctor by doctor, clinic by clinic.


    A low-income person does not dare get sick in today's world!
